Delicious, healthy Vegan Green Goddess Hummus!
Hey folks! A new recipe AND video today!! I’m excited to bring another video to the table because I hadn’t made one in a few months. When I first got my video-capable camera (which is separate from the one I use for photos), I went off in a video-making blur. And to be quite honest, I’m still not super thrilled with their quality. I want to make better videos, I just don’t have a lot of experience or insight in this field. But still, I’m going to keep working at it to constantly be bringing you better content! And I hope you’ll enjoy the videos in the meantime ;)
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll have seen that recently I got a new camera lens. I’ll be honest with you guys, before buying this lens I had kind of given up on myself as a serious photographer. I just couldn’t get my photos to come out how I wanted them to; they were always blurry and out of focus. But now, with this new equipment, I can say with 100% certainty that the problem was my old lens. With this new set-up, I feel more creatively rejuvenated than I have in a LONG time. I think that the new lens represents something more to me symbolically, too – it means that I take myself seriously, and invest in the equipment I need to succeed. The right attitude goes a long way, too!
Onto the recipe! This vegan green goddess hummus is representative of the type of snack I make all the time at home – something quick, nutritious, but still totally tasty. I love hummus with pita or tortilla chips, and I’ve even been known to make a dinner out of it! This particular iteration of hummus is great too because it has lots of healthy greens in it. I hope you love it!!

Love all the flavors in this hummus, Sarah! I’ve read that cilantro is an excellent detoxifier.. so I say bring on more cilantro! Good for you on video and a new lens. Indeed a good lens is important, but as with any artist… it’s the artists eye that contributes to the magic. Isn’t it a relief to have the tools to make the magic happen and how you want it? Well done! This is gorgeous!

I really resonate with what you’ve said, Traci… I feel that before my eyes were closed to the possibilities I could create in photography. And this lens has given me the tools I need to open them! :)

This hummus looks so perfect for summer snacking! Love all of the fresh + beautiful flavors going on in there. I also always love your photography, but I know what a huge difference a new lens can make (it’s time for me to upgrade as well, I think). Yay for you for taking that step!
SarahAugust 8, 2018 at 9:35 pm
Awww thank you so much Ruby! But the lens has made a huge difference for me, not only in the photos, but in my mind as well :)

This looks delicious, Sarah! Love the idea of adding fresh herbs :) I totally feel you with the lens. I recently bought a new lens and it makes such a big difference. Unfortunately, my camera broke down so I haven’t been able to use it as much as I would like. But it should be fixed soon. Your photos are looking gorgeous! <3
SarahAugust 8, 2018 at 9:35 pm
Oh no, I’m sorry to hear that! The main reason I got this lens was when my best one broke lol. I hope your camera gets fixed soon! :)

I made this today to have with my lunch and it was delicious! I used shallot instead of onion and skipped the salt/olive oil because I prefer my hummus that way.

I’m so glad you liked the recipe, Tracy!! Shallot sounds really good in here too. Thanks so much for leaving a note! :)

This hummus looks SO yummy Sarah! Love the video too. Been meaning to jump on the video bandwagon myself but still trying to muster up the courage to dive in!

Thanks so much Jess! It’s definitely a big step, and one that I’m not sure I’ve actually made lol. But I’m always looking to improve my videos, and I won’t stop working until they’re better!
